Megumi created an Interactive tag using Etcetera mini Tag from stampers Anonymous and Rupert from Sizzix . He eats ice cream while moving his hands and neck ! His mouth is proof of that ! She used Funky Cactus , Circle Play die from Tim Holtz and Sizzix , Stencil Ringer ,Decayed  from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous , and Dirty Sand Texture Embossing Powder  from Emelald Greek. Please pop by Megimi’s blog to see how he moves!

Anna-Karin created a mixed media canvas with soft summer colors. She used the Simon Says Stamp Peony Bouquet stencil for the flowers and the Geo Leaves stencil for the yellow leaves.

Barbara created a couple of cards using summer colors! She used Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Bold Sayings Stamp Set, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Snarky Cat Stamp Set, Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock and a lot of Ranger Distress ink Pads.

Cheiron created a tag featuring Found Relatives celebrating summer on a cruise and used Distress Paints to color her background. She stamped on her background with Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mesh and Linen, Field Notes and Sea Life and added Matte Texture Paste through the Stitches stencil . She finished her tag a number from Mini Marquee Letters and a sentiment from Snarky Small Talk.

Emma was inspired by the summer of a bygone era and created a vintage style framed panel using a Tim Holtz Group Paper Doll as the focal point which she coloured with Distress Crayons. She surrounded the girls with dimensional die cut flowers made with the Funky Florals 3 Thinlits Die and added plaque which she created using the Seal Switchlit Embossing Folder.

Kath was inspired by her garden to create a card celebrating Summer. She used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flourish and Dotted Line Layering Stencils and Idea-ology Entomology Collage Paper to add interest to the background and added the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Perspective Moth die-cut from Distress Watercolor card and Simon Says Vellum and used Alphanumeric Varsity and Label Thinlits for the sentiment.

Lols looks forward to the lazy days of summer when she can relax at the beach and immerse herself in a good book! She made a bookmark using several Tim Holtz Layering Stencils and Distress Inks for the background and used a Simon Says Stamp Engraved Feather and an older Tim Holtz Book Die for the focus.

Macarena sent Rupert to spend some summer days in Arizona and meet his Tim Holtz Sizzix Rupert brothers. He seems to have fun admiring Tim Holtz Sizzix Funky Cactus.

Maura made a card to share her love of summer reading. She used Stamping Bella’s Reading Gnome, Simon Says Stamp’s Shine On stamp, and Tim Holtz’s Dotted Line layering stencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Sea World Paper and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Rays on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Cling Rubbers Stamp Ponderings and Mariner Blueprint.

Sandra made a bright yellow sunny card with Distress Oxide and Ink in Fossilized Amber and Mustard Seed, to add some texture she used the Rays stencil and colored the Texture Paste with True Yellow Liquid Acrylic Paint

Zoey used the new Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Mod Cactus, a bunch of distress ink in the green shade and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Dotted Line to create this background. She also used Gina K Designs Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder to highlight the cactus.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
